john walsh as we approach one month before election day. see you then. >> there is a saying that dr. king had said, there is always the right time to do the right thing. i just try to live my life every day by doing the right thing. we know that we are only about halfway to completely eliminate hunger and we have work to do. walmart committed $2 billion to fighting hunger in the u.s. as we work together, we can stamp hunger out. >> and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. >> be more. pbs. pbs.
to let the media ask you questions, you never have to worry about giving them answers. john walsh is editor at large for "salon" and author of "what's the matter with white people." and douglas brinkley is editor of "rolling stone." he conducted an oval office interview with president obama. what do we make of this whole thipg, th thing, this strategy, first of all with you, douglas, this whole idea of a president, it clicks with me as sort of the dewy campaign of 1948 where the guy basically -- as manchester wrote in "the glory and the dream," he had every means of communication to say anything he wanted, and he had nothing to say. also the nixon campaign of '68 where he hunkered down with his big lead and said absolutely nothing, including no interviews. >> i was thinking of '68 today. look, you remember when brian williams did that interview during the london olympics of mitt romney, and it was a disaster. he almost got thrown out of the uk, and at that time charles krauthammer wrote a recommendation to mitt romney which was zip it, be quiet, you can only do damage to yourself
. the chairman, another raging leftist, john walsh, criticized united states senator scott brown, i know he's a man, but there's a point, criticized him for -- in a television ad, for folding laundry because he was trying to be an honorary girl. how about that? oh, you're not supposed to say that sort of thing. bill mar called sarah palin every name in the book, called michele bachmann every name in the book, david letterman has done it, kris matthews has done it again and again and again, insulting women. letterman attacked sarah palin's daughter. she was 14, giveƱmer a break. nothing, nothing ever happened. it is profound hypocrisy, a theme that runs through the book, how incredibly hypocritical the left has been in ripping the country apart, claiming to be the champions and defender of women, and yet, they just defend liberal women, and their policies are systematically reeking have vac on the groups they claim to champion. women is the perfect example. highest poverty rate in 17 years because of the result of the job killing policies of this administration. the extreme poverty rate for
afternoon to you. >> thank you, martin. >> todd aiken told us the uterus can detect a rapist sperm and john walsh claimed the life of the mother is never in danger due to technology and now mr. hour duck. isn't there something repugnant about the way these people discuss the horrifying crime of rape? >> yes and amazingly they want to appeal to women? i really can't understand why any woman is going to vote republican and now mitt romney has an ad up that was the democratic ad, but mitt romney has an ad up supporting richard mourdock, and i know there's a lot of people who are saying then if you really have a different view from mourdock, then take down your ad. >> isn't the fundamental problem here that while mitt romney and paul ryan go on to the debate stage, they claim to be moderate, considerate people. the fact is that they lead a party that is anything but moderate, and in 13 days' time, that party could have overwhelming power over this nation. >> you know, even though they're embarrassed by walsh and aiken and mourdock, if you really get down to it, mitt romney and certainly paul ry

[applause] >> thank you, john walsh salaam of, editor of large from msnbc analyst and author of the new book what's the matter with white people or i should say what's the matter with white people why we long for the golden age that never was. now it's time for questions from you. we have a few to get started with and i will probably come up with some of my own. let's ask one of these from the audience. one person would like to know can we have a democracy without a middle class? >> it's very hard. i think that's why we decided to create one after the twin traumas of the terrible depression and the worst war that we had ever seen. i think that we -- it's very hard to have a country where economic power is so concentrated in the hands of very few and they then raided the game to make sure that it continues both economic and political power is to be concentrated there. my book is critical of democrats in some ways. if you want to know why mitt romney pays a scandalously disgustingly low tax rate need to talk to some democ

. there will be one responsible position i can ensure you that. >> it was great when i chose general john walsh as my running mate. a good friend from missoula, traveling and so there better be an equal amount of men and women under campaign staff. i thought aright, that means i had to fire at least one of the men. i will certainly provide opportunities, all the opportunities i can for women in mind and a stray shin. those that know me and i'm sure my wife, lisa, would let me know if there's any suggestion otherwise. a look at the most capable, competent folks and whoever does i will be heads of my various departments. >> mr. bullock commute been critical of mr. hill's school funding plan same amount as a word or what are you proposing in k-12 schools and what kind of financial commitment will you make? bullock first and foremost, we need to see where we are financially and also display any and comments snake series or the school finance formula for about 10 years now and is actually going to be a comprehensive study that needs to be done. starting out and look at possibilities of one-time only money
by new york magazine's john heilemann, joan walsh with salon, and david corn with mother jones. it's an honor to be with you guys tonight. it's an important night. maybe theimportant night of this whole election season and cycle. joan, let me show you some polls to everybody. the new usa today/gallup pop. among likely female voters in swing states, likely female voters in swing states, the president's lead has almost evaporated. it's a virtual dead heat now. he has a one-point technical advantage, 49% to 48%. this is among women in these states. joan, my contention was that he never made the case to women in the first debate. >> he didn't. he didn't make the case to women in the first place. it was campaign malpractice, but biden didn't make the case in the second debate. this is his crucial, maybe his most crucial asset next to african-americans as his base is the women's vote, and he could have taken it to them on lily ledbetter and equal pay. do you not support equal pay for women. he could have taken it to him on obama care. the most important thing about obama care is it means
staunch john f. kennedy liberals to voting for richard nixon. >> walsh says white middle class men blamed problems in the country on feminism and the civil rights movement. they jumped to the republican party and soon after many of their wives followed. >> we on the left, liberals like to say that the white working class left because of racism and certainly richard nixon and pat buchanan were brilliant in convincing the white working class that government only cared about black people and women to some extent and didn't care about them. >> but walsh says it's more complex than that. >> my mother was a civil rights liberal. but as the 60s turned to the 70s she saw the social disorder and she became afraid. and so white working class women did move with their husbands. the gap to this day that the democrats have enjoyed with women is much bigger with single women. the gender gap originated with reagan and white women started being a little bit more white working class women, a little bit more susceptible to the appeals of democrats. >> today women's issues are considered by many to be econo

stephanie miller show." hi john. >> caller: how you doing steph? >> stephanie: good. go ahead. >> caller: hi, mooks. tammy duckworth is running against that scum ball. >> stephanie: she's got to win. >> caller: tammy needs some help because joe walsh has the super pacs that are pouring $2.5 million in the ads in the last two weeks. i'm hoping your listeners can help tammy out. she's an excellent person. >> stephanie: she is. i love that he got booed at the last debate. he's just -- i can't even decide whether he's more sexist or just a jerk, right? >> caller: he's just a first-class jerk. i can't believe half the people in this congressional district like this scumbag. >> stephanie: john, i love the fact that -- we'll see what happens. but boy, the fact that these tea party heroes -- you know, joe walsh, steve king and michele bachmann are finally vulnerable. i find it -- >> denigrating wounded war veteran. she keeps talking about her military service blah, blah, blah blah. >> stephanie: she's no hero. re
-- there is a positive side of rape and we should all think of rape as god's will and that's -- >> john: if fairness, that's not what mr. mourdock said. >> well, right but there is an upside to rape is what they've been telling us and last week, we had joe walsh who said that because science is so great women no longer need abortions to protect their health. >> john: who would have ever guessed a guy named joe walsh would make the joe walsh from the eagles look like the wholesome one. what can the president or the democratic party do at this point to get female voters who have swung over to romney. romney to his credit have been effective in pushing this line, women care more about jobs than about abortion rights. it seems to have worked. what can democrats do to sway the voters back? >> well, you know, i think he will keep talking about what democrats have talked about for decades. i was looking at the statistics today. last time the republicans won the female vote was jimmy carter, gerald ford, they flip-flopped. it
